    Here's a dedication to Ian Curtis on the 40th anniversary of his death. For such a short career he had a profound impact on my own music, and that of many of my favourite artists.

    "Even on a cloudy day, I'll keep my eyes fixed on the sun"

    "But I heard voices, Not in the head, out in the air, they called to me. Through record speakers, through thick and thin, they found a shelter, beneath my skin"

    Well deserved, Eric. That is the best song I have heard that was inspired by the "Lock down" period... and I have heard loads!
    If someone had told me this was a Neil Young song, I'd have totally believed them... Er... that's a good thing in my book, in case you were wondering 😉

    Great minds Berni, I thought it had a Neil Young feel to it too.

    Dedicated to the eternal sea. Remembering the wonderful beaches of France, we cannot visit this year.

    Some time ago, I saw Jon play a song that he wrote, ‘I’m Saving Up All My Dimes For You’ — I instantly fell in love with its upbeat and joyful essence! I asked Jon to send me the song chart for this tune, which he did readily, much to my delight. I had in mind to teach this song to the ukulele group that I started in my neck of the woods — but, alas, I never had the opportunity to do so, due to the state of world affairs.

    So...I’ve been working on the song..a lot. It’s hard for me to play; this, as there’s a bit of chord melody/fingerstyle work going on, which I’m beginning to learn with playing this song. I hope Jon will be alright with what I’ve attempted to do with his wonderful song.

    Having said all that, I have a dual dedication for this entry:

    1) I dedicate this song, along with a heart full of gratitude, to Jon — thank you for sharing your music and love for the arts with all of us!

    2) I dedicate this song, also, to all Seasonistas. You all inspire me tremendously with your love of uke; with your love of sharing music; with your ability to keep on track together — being in community here on UU — even despite all that’s going on in the world. We are all making time for eachother, to be together — and that speaks volumes to my heart, to my soul. Thank you and love to you all!

    Greetings,

    This is a homemade song dedicated to my cousin Frankie who committed suicide. I’ve been working on it for a few months now and this is the perfect season to roll it out. I originally titled it Frankie and Gina but renamed it to “ Discarded “. I wrote it to capture a mindset. Hard to explain.

    Ciao
